Digital Fixed Deposit
Axis Bank provides digital fixed deposits, which can be opened without an Axis Bank Savings Account by providing basic information. It has a slew of benefits, including competitive FD interest rates, no issuance fees, and no penalty for early withdrawal (up to 25% of the amount).
Fixed deposit and lending rates are projected to increase in tandem with an increase in the central bank’s policy repo rate. FD depositors will once again enjoy the outcome as a result of the RBI’s 35 basis point rate increase for the December policy. Since May, banks have increased their FD rates sharply in accordance with the results of the RBI’s policy decisions, thus enhancing the appeal of FD investment.
Other banks that have hiked FD interest rates include SBI, Kotak Mahindra Bank and HDFC Bank in the last one week. SBI increased FD interest rates by up to 65 basis points. After the hike, the highest FD rate SBI is offering is 6.75% for regular citizens and 7.25% for senior citizens. HDFC Bank offers fixed-term deposit (FD) interest rates ranging from 3% to 7% for the general public and 3.50% to 7.50% for senior citizens for tenure between 7 days to 10 years.
